I have been wanting to photograph a styled shoot inspired by the editorial Vogue look for quite some time. Wedding dresses are getting more and more beautiful and often when I arrive to a wedding, I’m blown away by the beauty in the details, color palettes and dress. In fact, I start with those details first thing when I arrive after saying hello to make sure they’re covered.
With this shoot, I wanted two distinctively different looks. The first has an all white palette inspired by Jackie O with the high waisted and lace dress. With the second look, it was much more stylishly “hot” and I shot it a little more “grungy” for that look. The long black gloves and gorgeous burgundy color palette were so fun and perhaps even more beautiful in person.
A session like this doesn’t happen without people saying “yes” when I ask for help. I love and appreciate all the participants more than they know.
Charlie, my model and almost wedding client, said yes to a quick message on FB. I was actually hired to photograph her wedding until she decided to elope in New York. As much as I wish I could’ve photographed her wedding, I totally get the elopement thing.
Cami, the SWEETEST dog on the planet, is owned by Fran who owns West End Grooming. A friend of mine uses West End for her dogs and she kept telling me about Cami and how amazing she is and she was so right. Everyone fell in love with her. The crazy thing is that she’s a rescue dog from Rockwall Animal Shelter. I think that makes me love her even more.
Denise with Clink Events said yes with a quick phone call. I’ve worked with Clink Events for years and they created the color palettes that went with each dress. Her designers, Katie and Jessica, created Pinterest inspiration boards and they were total eye candy and exactly what I needed.
Signature Bridal out in Bee Cave lent me the dresses. Lexi, with Signature Bridal, helped us narrow down our choices from a TON of gorgeous dresses. I honestly don’t know how a bride picks just one dress. I’ve had clients have a wedding dress for the ceremony and then change into a reception dress and now I get it. The first dress is by Jasmine Couture and the second dress is by Sottero & Midgley. GORGEOUS!
Stephanie with Bouquets of Austin has said yes so many times through the years for flowers and I always LOVE her work. One of the best in the business.
Ashley Bittles did Charlie’s hair and makeup and it was perfect for the look I wanted. Ashley does hair and makeup for my studio clients and I’m always blown away with her work.
Linda Holmbeck with Horizon Realty was the realtor that offered the house for the shoot that is currently for sale. I WISH I could afford it.
